This is a straightforward history of the Athletics franchise, from its Connie Mack years in Philadelphia with great teams featuring Eddie Collins, Chief Bender, Jimmy Foxx, Mickey Cochrane and Lefty Grove, through its 13 years in Kansas City, under Arnold Johnson and Charles O. Finley, and on to its great years in Oakland-with the three World Series wins featuring Catfish Hunter, Reggie Jackson, Sal Bando and Vida Blue, and the conflicts with Finley-as well as the less successful seasons that followed, and ending up with the unusual operation of the club by Billy Beane.
